the race for subsidies and giving incentives to reduce barriers to trade between europe and america. please, do let us jointly work for a global economic order that is in the interest of both america and europe. ladies and gentlemen, the global challenges can only be met by comprehensive international cooperation. it's also true for the third great task we need to stand in the 21st century. the war that seemingly separates the present and the future. this war prevents us from doing what is urgently necessary to preserve the basis of our very life and climate. we can already see now where this wasteful attitude falls. icebergs are falling in the artic. the global sea level is rising. i am satellited to note that president obama and you in your daily -- i am delighted to note that president obama and you in your daily work know that the climate is important in your daily task. of new technologies offers great opportunities for growth and innovative jobs. and innovative jobs. . no doubt about it, in december the world will look to us, to theure peaians and to the americans. and it is true ther

the house prove differently. the affordable health care for america act is a piece of legislation that will provide security and stability for americans who have insurance, affordable options for those who do not, and bring down costs while strengthening the financial health of medicare. it is legislation that is fully paid for and will reduce the long-term federal deficit. given the heated and often misleading rhetoric surrounding this legislation i know this was a courageous vote for many members of congress. i am grateful to them and to the rest of their colleagues for taking us this far. more importantly, so are many millions of americans whose lives will change when we achieve insurance reform. host: the president was on capitol hill prior to the passage. how active a role has he taken on the senate side, or his close advisers liked rahm emanuel guest: emanuel has been more in the forefront in will go to the hill. he knows a lot of the names and faces. my sense is that the president did not realize, as many from both parties did not, how big a fight this would be. earlier in
i would be willing to pay more taxes so that everyone can have health care insurance in america. i have never heard anybody connected health care to the economy. if you have got health care, then at least you can, you know, get yourself taking care of, instead of spending all your money trying to pay doctors' bills, hospital bills and all of that, filing for bankruptcy. host: thank you for calling. this particular viewer does not mind a tax increase. give us the scope of the discussion right now about cost. those all importance cbo numbers are coming in soon. >> correct. on the cost issue, it remains to be seen what people would be willing to pay additionally. it is certainly true that they are concerned about the possibility of having to pay more. the caller just now mentioned pre-existing conditions. doing away with the denial of coverage on the account of people's health problems is one of the most popular issues in the overall health-care overhaul. 80% of the public supports that. in our poll we asked people what it's doing away with pre- existing condition the niles causes pre
in america, spreading our own impact. using and trying cut down the trade deficit and using that in some way to spread more moral for the healthcare. for the people. and somehow that the task is not that it's not simple. a tax free code that can be implemented across the board in something like we say, 5 point 1 percent. this kind of code can be equally spread out at even the upper class. the bill class and the lower class should be able to get the same tax free code in that percentage rate. alls i'm trying say here, i believe in president barack obama. i know that the president percentage is down. i know that the american people need an aid for healthcare but america needs to think about the elderly. host: this from laura. i graduated during the reagan depression. that's what the exert said but i had nothing to look for example september more reagan. also from this mornings opinion page on the "wall street journal". ing on the and cheek. ken strauss wanted a national jobs are. employer. democratic party. crisis management. complex mathematics. mental health professionals start right now. r
of the work of their letter carriers that go to every home and business in america six days a week, by far, they are the highest rated federal agency that we have in america today. they do the best jobs. i think it would be a mis targeting of our problems to solve those problems. we need to change their structure. i was wondering -- there have been a few things mentioned today about allowing the post office, through the postal accountability and an instant act, to branch out into these other areas. i know there is some apprehension in competing with the private sector. there are some areas, specifically the idea about the postal service taking over major responsibilities from the census. the post office already, through the mail handlers and the letter carriers, they go into every home and business in america already. that is basically what the census does. it tracks the population most effectively through those home visits. have you looked at any of that so it would the government taken over government work to do it more efficiently for the taxpayer? have we looked at any of that or have
